Hexagon Absolute Arm 6-Axis
 
Portable Measuring Arm Optimised for Probing
A specialised touch measurement tool that also boasts the option for entry-level 3D scanning – the Absolute Arm 6-Axis is one of a kind. Based on patented technology with Absolute Encoders located at every articulation point and designed with ease-of-movement and usage as a focus, this is a portable measuring arm like no other.
 
WiFi and battery options ensure absolute portability while almost 100 probe tip accessories make finding the right tool for any specific touch probe or infrared tube probe application simple. An established repeatable kinematic probe mounting allows for hot-swapping of probe tips with no recalibration, and there’s no need to worry about warm-up or referencing on set-up or repositioning – these are advanced technology solutions that deliver increased productivity and make portable measurement easier than ever.
 
 
Features
  • Probing and Scanning

Specialised for high-accuracy probing while also compatible with the entry-level HP-L-8.9 Laser Scanner, the Absolute Arm 6-Axis offers the multifunctionality that can lead to clear productivity improvements.

  • Absolute Encoders

The renowned Absolute Encoders placed in every articulated joint of the Absolute Arm make it the only portable measuring arm on the market to completely eliminate encoder referencing and frustrating system warm-up times, boosting productivity while delivering high-end accuracy.

  • Advanced Materials

Built on a foundation of high-tech carbon-fibre tube construction, the Absolute Arm maintains strength and thermal stability under any environmental conditions, offering reliable accuracy whatever the environment.

  • Effortless Movement

Intuitively located infinite-rotation low-friction grips have been designed to maximise accuracy by minimising user fatigue and making every movement light and easy to handle – together with a sophisticated counterbalance system, the Absolute Arm is the most agile arm on the market.

  • Essential Security

Stow and lock in place the Absolute Arm between measurements with the HomeDock and SmartLock functions, ensuring that scanners and probes remain undamaged and factory-accurate.

  • User Feedback

In even the harshest industrial environments, communicating with the Absolute Arm in a way that keeps the measurement process running at full speed and efficiency has never been more simple, through our range of visual, acoustic and haptic feedback functions.

  • Absolute Portability

Even the largest Absolute Arm 6-Axis systems weigh only 9.5 kilograms, making setup and repositioning a quick and easy process, while the functionally designed and shock-resistant carry case keeps everything secure during transport.

  • ISO Certification

The probing accuracy of the Absolute Arm 6-Axis is certified to ISO 10360-12 as standard.

  • Technological Foundation

Built upon years of portable measuring arm technology, the Absolute Arm 6-Axis is the latest in a long line of market-leading articulated measuring arms, from the CIMCORE Arm to the ROMER Absolute Arm and now beyond.
